A 64-year-old woman presented at our institution with abdominal pain. An electrocardiogram suggested the possibility of acute anteroseptal myocardial infarction. Her medical history included esophageal reconstruction with use of a jejunal conduit in the anterior mediastinum. Echocardiography revealed a distended jejunal conduit, which was compressing the right ventricle. Once the cause was identified, nasogastric suction was initiated and the symptoms and electrocardiographic changes resolved.
